Yin Cui

Ph.D. Student

Cornell University

Hi, I am Yin Cui (崔崟 in Chinese, pronounced as /yin tsui/), a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University and Cornell Tech. I am very fortunate to be a member of SE(3) Computer Vision Group led by Professor Serge Belongie. My research interests lie in the field of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. My recent projects use deep learning for similarity metric learning and fine-grained visual recognition. For more information, please refer to my Curriculum Vitae.
